- LCFC Women recorded an eighth consecutive league win by beating Crystal Palace 1-0 in Quorn on Sunday
- Goalscorer and home debutant Hannah Cain assessed the victory when speaking to LCFC TV after the game
- She says it was extra special to open her account for the Club and secure three points after a long road to recovery from injury
- The Foxes remain at the summit of the FA Women's Championship ahead of facing London Bees next weekend
The forward's goal, her first for the Club, was scored 10 minutes before half-time and settled a hard-fought contest in Quorn.
Lachante Paul worked the opening down the right and picked out Cain in the middle, who found the corner with a neat strike on the half-volley.
It proved vital in securing victory against the Eagles and keeps City in pole position with six games to go.
Lachante Paul & Hannah Cain
Lachante Paul and Hannah Cain combined for the only goal of the game at Farley Way.
"I'm happy with my performance, but obviously I wouldn't have got the goal if it wasn't for the girls in the build-up behind it.
"We've worked a lot on that specifically this week in training, so, again, it's always nice to see what you train and work on come off in a game."
Following a long period on the sidelines, Cain, a summer signing from Everton, believes she is starting to reap the rewards of many months of hard work, with the help of her team-mates and backroom staff.
Back-to-back league starts against Liverpool and Crystal Palace have followed on from three substitute appearances and the 22-year-old continues to get stronger every day as she bids to reach full fitness.
"It's very hard to come back after an injury like that," she revealed. "But with the staff and obviously the players, it's very easy to. The more games I play, the easier it gets.
All smiles at the full-time whistle after Cain's home debut goal.
"So, it's just about getting more minutes under my belt and making sure that the rest of my body is now ready to play more minutes."
Leicester's eighth consecutive league victory maintains the Foxes' position at the top of the FA Women's Championship standings, with Durham their closest challengers, behind on goal difference.
"We just need to focus on ourselves." Cain added. "We don't like to get caught up with what the other teams are doing. "Obviously, it's very tight and if you focus on them too much, you lose track of what you're doing. So, I think we do very well as a team to just focus on us and that shows in the performances.
"We're very good at getting the games boxed off. We know that we can win most games as long as we're focused on it. So, now we've done this game, we'll review it, and then look forward to the next one (against London Bees), and that's just how we're taking it at the moment."
